passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

Why I'm Waiting

I can honestly say there has been some good marketing behind this book. I've been interested in this book since I heard the first brief description of it and I just realized I never took the time to see what it was about myself. Putting the description on my blog for this post was my first time actually reading through it and I have to say this sounds really intriguing.

I've never read anything by Alexandra Bracken but I've heard so many good things about her/her writing. I own The Darkest Minds and would like to get to that before I start this series, especially since that series is wrapped up. There have been so many good reviews from people with early copies that have me looking forward to this even more. I might not get to this book as soon as it releases but I'm excited to read it!
